Interesting doco, probably "important", but not much of a film..
9 August 2004 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

This short documentary is about what is undoubtedly the worst mix of politics and sport. Tibet wants to play an international soccer match. They find an opponent in the shape of Denmark. Why Denmark? We're not told.

But China doesn't want there to be Tibetan soccer team on the grounds that "Tibet is part of China", and tries to exert political and economical pressure on Denmark by the crudest possible method: threatens exports from Denmark. And the Tibetans live in exile in India, so they have to deal with the Indian government, which is understandably nervous about irritating China.

A fascinating look at the politics, geography, economics and demographics of three countries: Tibet, India and Denmark. And you thought staging a backyard football game was tricky!!!!
